Pearce: Fed’s Reckless Policies Hurt Seniors, Middle Class
Washington, DC (May 2, 2013) – Today, U.S. Congressman Steve Pearce responded to the Federal Reserve’s announcement that it will continue “quantitative easing,” the unorthodox, expansionary monetary policy of printing money that hurts seniors and middle class families already struggling to make ends meet.
“The Fed promised Americans that by printing money, we could solve our economic problems” said Pearce. “Five years and nearly four trillion dollars later, little has changed. Unemployment remains high and the economy continues to struggle. Inflation, the policy’s unintended but very real consequence, hurts seniors and the middle class. People who live on fixed incomes are having to stretch every dollar further and further.

PEARCE WSMR BILL PROCEEDS THROUGH COMMITTEE
Washington, DC (April 26, 2013) – Today, the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Public Lands and Environmental Regulation held a hearing on HR1229, the White Sands Missile Range Security Enhancement Act, introduced by Congressman Pearce. This legislation would transfer 5,100 acres of land adjacent to White Sands Missile Range from BLM to the Army to ensure the missions at the Range.
“I would like to thank Chairman Bishop and his staff for their willingness to discuss this bill today,” said Pearce. “White Sands Missile Range is unlike any other military installation in the United States. Because of its history, remote location, and unique mission, the base is able to work on a wide range of vital national security projects, from testing sophisticated weapons systems to communicating with the International Space Station. Today’s legislation ensures that these important missions are able to continue, for the safety of the United States and the future of New Mexico.
